As May 2020 unfolds, seniors are ready to celebrate.  This year, those celebrations may look a little different!  In a world of social distancing, graduations may be virtual, drive-through, or even drive-in!  2020 has been presented its seniors with a unique set of circumstances, but 2021 seniors will (hopefully) be able to celebrate in person.  Get a jumpstart on 2021 and plan the ultimate graduation event at Universal’s Grad Bash in Orlando!

What is Grad Bash 2021?

Orlando’s hottest senior class party is Universal’s Grad Bash. This epic rite of passage takes place in two spectacular theme parks, Universal Studios™ and Universal’s Islands of Adventure™. On Grad Bash nights, the parks are closed to everyone except high school seniors.  It’s an awesome experience to have these world-class theme parks to open exclusively to them!

Grad Bash is an all-night celebration featuring today’s hottest music stars performing LIVE in concert at various locations in each park. This unforgettable experience includes tons of dancing, high-energy coasters, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, exciting rides and attractions, and mouthwatering munchies.

A Grad Party with NO Alcohol

Unlike many traditional graduation parties, Grad Bash doesn’t include alcohol! It’s a “spirited” night with NO over 21 beverages monitored by park employees, adults, and local law enforcement. Even better, transportation is provided between parks.

What to Wear

Comfort is king during a night of fun! Comfortable t-shirts and button-downs are perfect for guys and dresses or shorts that reach mid-thigh are great for girls. Comfortable shoes (no water shoes) are a must as well.

When is Grad Bash 2021?

This year’s Grad Bash takes place April 3, 17, 18, 24 & 25, 2020 from 7:00 PM – 2:00 AM.  2021 dates have not been announced but will most likely be around this time.  Spots sell out early so start planning now!

Other Fun Stuff to Do

A Pre-Party from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. gets the party started.  There’s an unlimited buffet dinner, exciting live street entertainment and DJs spinning your favorite music.

You can also get a little extra park time with Grad Bash Mix-In.  Seniors and chaperones can get the fun started at 4 p.m.

What About Chaperones?

Chaperones get one complimentary ticket for every 10 student tickets. Chaperones monitor the event to make sure there’s no smoking, drinking, or other illegal activity. They ensure students follow school rules and stay until the park closes.

Reserve Early!
